Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Hoffenheim will look to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Bayern Munich and Freiburg when they take on Heidenheim in the Bundesliga round 19. Hoffenheim made a slow start to 2024, but they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course in the national championship. Denmark forward Robert Skov is pushing for a recall to the starting XI, while defender Ozan Kabak serves a one-game ban due to the accumulation of yellow cards.
Heidenheim, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous five league matches and that is the main reason why they are going to grab something from Saturday’s encounter. Both Thomas Keller and Elidon Qenaj are sidelined with injuries, while Christian Kuhlwetter should miss out through illness (stomach disorder). In the first half of the season Hoffenheim defeated Heidenheim 3-2 and yet another high-scoring affair is on the cards.
Highlighted Player (Pavel Kaderabek):
Pavel Kaderabek is a Czech Republic defender born on 25 April 1992, who has enjoyed a bright start to his professional career. Coming through the youth ranks at Sparta Prague and gaining some first team experience during a loan spell with Viktoria Zizkov, the right-sided defender was finally able to show what he is capable of during the 2012/2013 season and he didn’t need a lot of time to make the next step in his career.
After scoring impressive 10 goals in 76 league appearances for Sparta Prague, Kaderabek joined Bundesliga side Hoffenheim in the summer of 2015, shortly after he had established himself as a starting right-back in the Czech Republic national team.
The talented footballer helped Repre make it to the Euro 2016 finals by starting 9 qualifying matches, once again proving his killer instinct by scoring two goals. Pavel Kaderabek looks set to become one of leading players of the new generation and a big club move may not be far away either.
